Take part in the Marathon du Médoc – wine marathon in France
If you thought that sports or running a marathon and drinking wine don’t go together, be prepared to be proven wrong. The Marathon du Médoc takes place in September in Bordeaux and has been officially running since 1985. The 42km-long track offers sublime surroundings with numerous scenic vineyards.
Combining ‘wine, sports, fun and health’, participants are encouraged to indulge in 23 glasses of wine along the way together with local specialties like cheese, steak, oysters, foie gras and ice-cream. If that’s not enough, everyone is in fancy dress and will go home with a delicious goody bag if they finish in a certain amount of time.
Now, is it better to go on an eating spree or to run some laps to prepare for this event? Not sure, but in any case, have some wine.
